You do realize Samsung sells much more phones than Apple right? Apple isn't even close to the industry leader...seriously, spend 2 minutes on a web search.

"The earlier than expected release is dictated by the disappointing sales of the Galaxy S4" xD

If Samsung doesn't change is going to be dead in an earlier future...

s4?s5 -samsung - why not clear to samsung bosses to stop playing bad mad games with loyal customers - now this absurd samsung region locks s4 note 3 blacklists etc etc -even via new updates for s4 for devices bought n paid for unlocked by customers .. samsung do make excellent innovative handsets .. samsung must stop over hypes and expensive launchs .. instead - build credibility with loyal customers -- reduce prices -- value for money -- good after sales services -- sell actively via samsung airports shops -- so no more mean region locks on s4 etc backported via new updates .. and have single tier prices worldwide +local taxes ..sell sell international carriers bloats free unlocked versions ..but alas !

With the iPhone 5s out of course Samsung would release the Galaxy S5 soon after, Good S4 sales or not.

And all the other Android manufacturers are posting profits and increased volume shipments and these are at the expense of Samsung's sales. Samsung is definitely feeling the heat from within the Android camp.

of course S4 sales are dissapointing. It's a piece of cr@p. Awkward glossy cheap plastic, same boreing complicated hangdroid OS. Cr@ppy camera with oversaturated and oversharpenned pictures, and too bid measures itself. No change from S3.
Apple did much better job with 5S, that what are afraid of Crapsung...

And no doubt the S5 will look not unlike the S4, akin to the S3 and yet all the Android fanboys will rave about it while slating Apple for using the same form factor for the incarnations of the iPhone. Glass houses, people, glass houses!!

Hmm, I didn't expected to see this, maybe they will make it, or they will announce the Galaxy F instead of the S5. Anyway, if they will abandon the plastic material, and if they will make cooler smart phones, they will have a bigger success for sure. They should add a radio FM as well for those who needs a radio. Another thing is to NOT lock their phone to a continent only. Why they are doing this?

i dont know why samsung is disappointed with the sales of the S4... it still beats the hell out of the other android flagships in terms of sales.

I'll keep an eye for it to be honest. I like my S4, but it's little laggy, poorly optimized in proper term. Hope they'll optimize the TW good for S5, like it was really finely made for Note 2.
Only reason for me sticking with Samsung is their cool features and simple yet effective TW framework, if it were about that nonsense naked AOSP things I'd never even touch it.

Not unusual, within 4 months of release of GS4, other phones with better processor were available. Unless the price of GS4 is reduced to 300/350 euros, sale figures will not be good enough.
